Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.
I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!
Thank you for visiting my blog.

Snow White II
Welcome to my blog and thank you for finding the time to visit.
Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to have set the theme for the current Crafty Boots Challenge. I chose Children's Stories or Nursery Rhymes. I had known about the Challenge for a couple of months and I had been collecting relevant images for all of that time. By the time the Challenge was launched I has so many images I did not know which one to use, so I set myself a challenge, to make as many cards as I could during the two weeks of the challenge and try to post at least one a day.
I have now posted 22 cards and one tag and I have have managed to share most of those images with you. If you have been travelling this journey with me I should like to say a very big thank you for all of your support and the comments you have left. I do not think I would have continued if I thought that no one was reading my posts.
Card 23 is an image you have seen before, however I was not entirely happy with the hair of my other Snow White as I find black hair can be a little tricky. However, I am much happier with this one.
Snow White is by Saturated Canary, I coloured the image with Promarkers and added Glossy Accents to the apples. I mounted the image on silver mirri card and purple glitter card. The polka dot paper is by Dovecraft. The flowers and corner embellishments are from Wild orchid Crafts and the pearl swirl is by Kaisercrafts.
This Crafty Boots Challenge has now closed but there will be a brand new challenge tomorrow and right now I need to make my Design Team card.
I hope that you have enjoyed the last two weeks and you were inspired to enter the challenge.
